Gut Healing Program: 3 Months to a Healthier You!

Pregnancy
Support

We love helping moms with natural prenatal and post-natal care. We focus on both the structural and the nutritional aspect of pregnancy. As the baby begins to grow, and the ligaments began to relax it’s imperative to keep the mother’s spine and hips in alignment for an easier delivery.

Chiropractic

How can Chiropractic adjustments benefit a woman while pregnant?

Your body is an amazing creation that accomplishes miraculous tasks such as creating new life. These miraculous tasks are accomplished under the direction of the nervous system. The nervous system is the master communication system to all the body systems including the reproductive system.

In many cases, fertility issues may be associated with improper nervous system function, poor nutrition, high stress and poor lifestyle habits. As a Chiropractor, I am a nervous system specialist and reducing interference in the nervous system is my primary goal. I often work in the lower back, the lumbar area of the spine that sends signals to the ovaries. The nerves that control the ovaries come down from the brain and exit from this area to signal ovarian function. Keeping the spine in alignment and the nervous system clear of interference and other natural modalities such as nutritional counseling, exercise counseling and lifestyle counseling makes chiropractic one of your best options to help your body function the way it was designed to.

  • Prepares the pelvis for an easier pregnancy and birth by creating a state of balance in pelvic bony structures, muscles, and ligaments.
  • Removes tension on the ligaments that support the uterus thus reducing torsion (intrauterine constraint) to the woman’s uterus.
  • Reduces interference to the mother’s vital nerve system which controls and coordinates all of her systems and functions.
  • Allows for a safer easier birth for the mother, thus decreasing the potential for intervention. Possible prevention of a potential cesarean section.

Nutrition

I also look at organ function and nutrition. For example, the pituitary gland which is an endocrine gland about the size of a pea is a protrusion off the bottom of the hypothalamus at the base of the brain releases hormones such as the Follicle Stimulating Hormone and the Luteinizing hormone. Both of these hormones play a major role in ovulation. Ensuring this gland is functioning properly and has adequate vitamins and nutrients it needs to do so is crucial for conception.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used for centuries to help pregnancy. Acupuncture can help regulate ovulation. It can improve ovarian and follicular function. It has been shown that acupuncture can increase blood flow to the endometrium, helping to facilitate a thick, rich lining. It can also help with spasmed tubes which are often de-spasmed with acupuncture.

Acupuncture can also help once pregnant for someone with a high-risk pregnancy or a mom with a history of miscarriage. With the combination of Chiropractic, Nutrition, and Acupuncture we have had great success with fertility. In fact, fertility patients are my favorite patients because in just 9 short months we get to meet and welcome a new little person into the world and our office!

Note: Chiropractic care, nutrition, and acupuncture can safely be used in conjunction with western medicine approaches to fertility issues and can greatly enhance the chances of successful medical procedures. These modalities can also help make for a happier, a more comfortable, and a healthier pregnancy term as well.

Telehealth Prenatal Care

Pregnancy can be a wonderful and terrifying experience, especially if this is your first child. Most every expectant mother knows that it is imperative to eat properly and be mindful of what is necessary to ensure a healthy baby and a joyful experience during those nine months. Many women now have options when choosing their regime and natural prenatal care via telehealth has become a popular alternative.

Obviously, the first consideration for a successful pregnancy is a healthy lifestyle. This may involve giving up a few old habits, such as smoking or drinking in excess. She can also choose to take care of her baby in a more natural way. This means that she still lead a healthy lifestyle and do away with all her vices minus the synthetic supplements that are often prescribed during this period.

During this transitional period, the mother-to-be experiences many physical, emotional and spiritual changes and it is crucial that extra attention be given to her physical and emotional health; it is the mind-body balance that is a focal point for natural prenatal care in Austin.

Exercise is important for everyone and during your pregnancy, it is necessary to maintain a healthy weight and keep your body in its optimum state of performance. Some mothers-to-be practice yoga as it prepares your body and mental state for natural childbirth, if that is your goal. Nutritional supplements and natural remedies can also help you to maintain a balanced physical and emotional state throughout your pregnancy, especially when you may be feeling apprehensive, overwhelmed or fearful. A healthy, positive attitude is every bit as important as your physical health.

When you opt for natural prenatal care in Austin, you will become more in tune with the process and that will help ensure a tension free pregnancy, delivery and healthy baby.

Prenatal Vitamins

From the time of conception to delivery of your baby, a pregnant mother has to take care of her health and her baby’s as well. It is imperative that the mother-to-be consumes a healthy, nutritional diet to keep her energy levels up and give the baby a good start during its development.

Unfortunately, due to our hectic and busy lives, nausea, morning sickness and changing diet, it isn’t always easy to attain a 100% nutritional balance; a perfect solution to this problem can be a food based natural prenatal vitamins in Austin, Texas.

Prenatal vitamins are specifically designed to overcome the nutritional deficiencies in the diet of a pregnant woman. There are numerous varieties of prenatal vitamins currently available, but the difference among all these prenatal vitamins is their composition and whether they are natural or contain unwanted synthetics.

For women who are committed to the natural methods, the last thing you want to do is fill your body with synthetic vitamins, which is another reason to seek out the source for natural prenatal vitamins in Austin.

Each stage of pregnancy requires different types of vitamins and minerals to fulfill needs at different stages. During the first trimester, vitamins are required for balanced nutrients, and to minimize problems like nausea, morning sickness, vomiting etc. The second and third trimester also require supplements to meet the nutritional deficiencies in the baby and the mother; it is equally important to continue vitamin therapy after pregnancy in order to help the mother’s recovery from birth and provide nutrients during breast-feeding.

If you are one of the mothers who is committed to taking care of their unborn child in the most natural way possible, then all you have to do is familiarize yourself with the alternative and natural prenatal vitamins in Austin.

Webster Technique

We have completed a post graduate certification in The Webster Technique, formerly known as Webster’s “In-Utero Constraint Technique” or “Webster’s Breech Turning Technique,” developed by Dr. Webster in 1978.

In past years, it was believed that the Webster technique is only performed in a breech positioned baby. But actually, Webster technique can be used throughout pregnancy as prevention for dystocia. The Webster technique performed by a certified doctor is a non-invasive, safe, gentle and very effective adjustment which aligns the pelvis in all stages of pregnancy, preparing for a non-traumatic, non-invasive delivery. We have researched and found the highest nutrient dense, absorb-able products as well as foods to suggest to moms at each stage of pregnancy.
